Hilton Als in The New Yorker said, 'What we learn from Jomama's very particular radiance is this: you don't have to reduce the musical form to a musical just to make it more digestible. If you make a good, less reductive, and more grownup show, the people will come.' (more...)

BWW Blog: Bob Marks - Your Performance Goals in the Context of Your Lifestyle
by Guest Blogger: Bob Marks - Jul 15, 2016
